    Strictly speaking, that is not accurate. They did not say we were non-compliant. They said that they wanted to check if we were compliant and we would need to pay for them to make that...

    It was not renewed in the midst of the COVID pandemic because CFC members were not buying as many chess books and it did not make sense financially for the CMA to continue the arrangement. We missed...

    If we can return to full over the board play then there would be no reason to consider regular rating a restricted number of online tournaments. The effect of the current situation is that ratings...

    The players are not employees. I believe Bob is fully vaccinated but I think we would be on shaky ground if we were to try to force players to be vaccinated. I think we would also be on shaky...

    Actually, the directors can add the women's coordinator as a member of the board and the appointment will stand until the next AGM. We can appoint up to two additional directors (one third the number...
